They took over the Tarra Valley Caravan Park “Fernholme”, 19 kilometres north west of Yarram, drawn by the tranquility, and have been constantly making improvements ever since. “We’ve really made something of it, and have been receiving great feedback from those that have been coming here for years. It’s getting better and better and everyone loves it,” David said. “It’s such a tranquil and relaxing environment, with lots of waterfalls and walking tracks and the beautiful Tarra Bulga National Park right on our doorstep.” The park is award winning, picking up the Best Caravan / Cabin / Camping Park at the Wellington People’s Choice Awards in 2014 and 2016. With the award not granted to any business two years in a row, Tarra Valley Caravan Park “Fernholme” has been sharing this honour with Best Friend Holiday Retreat, just down the road. Not only do guests come for the environment that’s conducive to rest and relaxation. “Our scones have picked up awards at the Yarram Show and our Devonshire teas (served at their tea rooms) are very popular,” David said. Well trained dogs are welcome, so long as they are kept on a lead and their owners are also trained (clean up after them). Remember though – dogs are not permitted into any national park. When it comes to accommodation there is a choice of comfortable cabins, that sleep six to 10 people, or powered and non-powered campsites, surrounded by a natural bush and eco friendly environment. Two barbecue sheds with huge open fires and free gas barbecues are great for an informal get together, one of the sheds also equipped with a microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster. The natural bush setting of Tarra Valley Caravan Park “Fernholme” is conducive to rest and relaxation.
